Villa boss Martin O'Neill is a big admirer of winger Bentley but he won't go over the �10m mark for the ex-Blackburn star.

He tried to sign Bentley last summer but was pipped by Tottenham, who splashed out �15m.

Bentley, 24, has made just 24 appearances at White Hart Lane and Harry Redknapp would be happy to unload him.
